Autocomplete Tags

Replaces the default tag list interface in Symphony's backend with a jQuery Autocomplete widget. This is also compatible with Craig Zheng's enhanced tag list field provided you use a comma as the delimiter.

  • Make sure that the extension is in a folder named autocomplete_tags. Upload this to your Symphony extensions folder.
  • Enable the extension from the Extensions page in the Symphony backend.


Thanks to brendo (Brendan Abbott), who recommended I look at his Custom Field Captions extension to learn how to add scripts and stylesheets to the backend.

At its core, this extension just bundles part of the jQuery UI library. All I've done is added the necessary hooks to get the autocomplete widget working with Symphony's tag list field. The real evil masterminds are the jQuery UI developers.
